Zelda: Skyward Sword Remake “Close To Impossible” Without Motion Controls

With a September release date now locked in for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, series producer Eiji Aonuma has been asked whether more remakes were in the works.

While there are no plans at the moment, if Nintendo were to consider remaking another game it would need to have “new elements or new features.”

“Currently I don’t have plans, but there is a title that we can incorporate new elements or new features that is perhaps a perfect fit for a remake, then maybe we’ll consider it,” Aonuma explained to Game Informer.

The motion controls in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword have proven to be divisive ever since Link’s adventure was released on Wii in 2011.

With that, some have hoped that a potential remake could see Nintendo remove the motion controls entirely, but, in response to that idea, Aonuma doesn’t believe that it could happen as they are integral to the game’s design:

“So you’re saying control it all with buttons?” That’s a little hard! I think it might be close to impossible!”

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 20th.
